"Ngiti Mo, Sagot Ko"

In lieu of our Christmas party, the Association of Philippines Orthodontists in coordination with the Ateneo Center for Educational Development had an outreach program last November 20 at the Manuel L. Quezon elementary school. 

Some of the kids were shy to show  their teeth...
...while others flashed their brightest smiles!

The objective of the outreach was to promote proper oral hygiene.  APO volunteers taught about 400 students from Grades 2-4 how to brush while members of the Luz C. Macapanpan Foundation provided free dental check-ups and treatment.

Cyril and Xilver volunteered
to be the "models"

Needless to say, the event so really tiring but nonetheless truly fulfilling and inspiring! It was also an opportunity to meet up and reconnect with fellow orthodontists and old classmates.
